Support Your Child’s
Reading and Writing Skills.

Literacy is a fundamental life skill that begins to develop in your child’s early years. Building a strong literacy foundation will help them be more confident with reading and writing, even before they step into the classroom.

With speech therapy focused on literacy intervention, we’ll help them practice foundational literacy skills and improve their overall ability to read, write, and speak. Getting in touch with a speech-language pathologist early can also help avoid challenges in the future.

How Will Speech Therapy Help with My Child’s Literacy?

Literacy intervention may focus on reading and writing, but it also works alongside the development of speech and language skills. A more complete approach to literacy covers your child’s ability to:


understand and absorb information when they read or hear sentences


become familiar with words formed through the combined sounds they hear
(Phonemic Awareness)


relate written letters and letter combinations to their corresponding sounds


understand words and use them in the right context


combine all the above skills to read and write easily

Good reading practice and habits can support literacy and language development in the long-term. Starting early is key to raising proficient readers, and you can get started as soon as today when you get in touch with our speech-language pathologists.
